Urban Mining: Where to find the GOOD STUFF

Urban Mining is a term I use for being able to find project furniture pieces, vintage home accessories and materials that cost very little or sometimes nothing at all! Being resourceful is key when taking on any project. Over the years, I’ve learned where the local “honey holes” are for these items and have local contacts that I will share with you! Some of these deals are right where you shop in town, but you have to know when and where to look! During class we will also learn how to break down a pallet into useable project lumber in under 5 minutes. IT’S FREE WOOD and IT’S EVERYWHERE!! Each person in class will break down their own pallet and take that wood home, neatly bundled.

Gravity Meditation! Make your own Cairn Garden

In this class you will assemble your very own cairn garden! You will be provided with a beautifully detailed “tray” kit which you will sand and assemble with glue and just a few small nails. Your tray will then be filled with provided sand. This “garden” will be the soft surface on which we will stack our rocks. The act of rock stacking (building a cairn) is a unique practice in relaxation. You will find that identifying the gravity points and balance positions of rocks takes your mind off of everything else that may be buzzing around in your brain. The softness of the sand and cool earthy texture of the stones will put you in touch with nature as you get in touch with your inner calm.
